When muscles and/or joints are injured, this impacts both

Any correction of an orthopedic problem will be greatly enhanced by understanding the connection between your brain and muscles / joints to improve rehabilitation. This is why we are extensively trained in Functional Neurological Orthopedic Rehabilitation (FNOR™).
Of course if you’ve broken your arm or fractured your hip, then this will likely require surgery and or stabilization for a period of time before we can get to the important work of rehabilitating you back to your good old self.
